Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba wants you to help him help those affected by the wildfires in Australia.
He loves the country and its people so much. He traveled with a close friend to the East Coast of Australia after the season last year, and appreciated how this region of the world help him cope with a tough season.
He is hoping you can do like him and donate to different charities in order to provide support to people and animals in need.
Here is what he had to say on his Instagram account and how you can help:
“After a long hard season dealing with injury I was able to escape and take my mind off all the what if’s. I fell in love with this beautiful country. It breaks my heart seeing the tragedy they are facing. So I want to do my part and personally donate funds to help fight these fires and hopefully motivate you to do whatever you can to help.
With Minnesota being my home and the TWolves being my team I’ll be most definitely watching them tonight against the Grizzlies, I’ve decided to donate $100 for every point the T Wolves score directly to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.
Please help me by donating whatever you can to help with this cause and put an end to these fires. Whether that’s $5, $100 or even just sharing this post if you are not in a position to donate right now, every small action helps when we come together. Click the link in my bio to donate directly to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service to help fight the fires and care for the victims of this tragic event.”
What a class act!
